Lottery tickets make great gifts for people 18 or older
The Pennsylvania Lottery has many holiday-themed games and a long-running commercial touting lottery tickets as great gifts.
However, the Lottery also makes a point to remind consumers and retailers that “lottery tickets are not toys.” You must be 18 or older to play any PA Lottery games.
